Apart from the fact that it's the Mile High City, Denver's medical marijuana dispensaries now outnumber their Starbucks. Even as early as January of last year, Denver was being called "America's Cannabis Capital".

It's clear where the trends are heading, you guys.

The others will decry this "selling out" while they languish in relative obscurity. The signs are all there. [The Daily, Denver Post] Image Credit: Poznyakov/Shutterstock
